E36 lamps are projectors BUT they are not suitable for HID's without shrouds cause they still scatter the beam...And the main beam doesn't have projectors in them at all....
as for the main beams, it doesnt have the glass projector ball but they do still focus the light in front of the car properly, plus with main beams theres no chance of blinding any other driver as you only use main beams when there is no oncoming traffic and no other cars in front of you
Once you get shrouds fitted, it'll help. But the main issue for me is the kit being 55w. HID kits really don't need to be this powerful, 35w kits give out more than enough light (providing they're not too high a colour temp). I've had a 6000k 35w kit in for nearly 2 years and I rarely use full beam and I live in a rural location.
If you wanted a really good light output, a 35w kit at 4300k would have been more than enough. 55w kits are seriously painful to look at when they go past.
Why did you have to wire these up directly to the battery?? I've had a couple of sets of HIDs on various cars in the past and they simply connect to the existing headlight wiring harness with no need to run wires to the battery
Hex you got a link to these's HID?
As I had the same idea (Great minds think alike)
Looks good, how much did ya pay just so i know how much im looking at?
